Moisture Monitoring for SF6 / Air Circuit Breakers

by Moisture Control & Measurement Ltd     based in Wetherby, UNITED KINGDOM

SF6 (sulphur hexafluoride ) or air is used as an insulation gas in circuit breakers . Excess moisture in these gases causes arcing, which can trip the circuit breaker and cut off power to the distribution network. More seriously, such arcing can lead to physical damage of equipment and, on occasion, death of plant operatives (please ask for our case study on circuit breakers).

Fence Line Monitoring/ Source Identification

by Cooper Environmental     based in Beaverton, OREGON (USA)

The Xact 625 combined with ADAPT software creates the industry's most powerful tool for high time resolution detection of airborne metals. The Xact 625 measures trace metals at very low detection limits at time resolutions down to 15 minutes. The ADAPT package captures corresponding wind speed and wind direction data, then seamlessly integrates the measurements into wind regression analyses available at the touch of a button. This creates the most single most powerful fence line/ source identification instrument in the industry.

Ultra low pressure drop MFC flow solutions

by Sierra Instruments, Inc.     based in Monterey, CALIFORNIA (USA)

Precision mass flow control with industry leading pressure drop of 4.5 psid (310 mBard) up to flows of 500 slpm (nlpm); Accuracy +/- 1.0% of full scale; 316 stainless steel construction; CE Approved

International testing for biofuels

by Metrohm AG     based in Herisau, SWITZERLAND

Sustainable use of biofuels requires reliable and precise analytical methods throughout – from the choice of raw materials through to process optimization and on to the compliant final product. As a leading manufacturer of instruments for chemical analysis, we are quite aware of these challenges.

Emissions Monitoring

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

The Opsis monitoring solution in aluminium smelters is based on either DOAS or laser diode technique. The on-line, open-path systems are used for monitoring HF and sulphur dioxide in potrooms, in fence-line applications and in continuous emissions monitoring. Opsis has long experience of monitoring in aluminium smelters.

PM2.5/PM10 particulate monitoring

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

OPSIS provides real-time, flexible monitoring of particulate matter in the ambient air. Particulate matter monitoring with OPSIS, is a cost-effective solution, is ideally suited for use in modern monitoring stations. It can be remote controlled and includes automatic calibration, features that frees time.  The SM200 meets the new regulation for automatic monitoring of PM10 and PM2.5. It also meets the new regulation for particulate matter sampling on filter membranes for further analysis of cadmium, nickel, PAH and other substances.

Moisture Monitoring for Hydrogen Annealing Ovens

by Moisture Control & Measurement Ltd     based in Wetherby, UNITED KINGDOM

High moisture content in hydrogen gas used in annealing furnaces causes oxidation of the metal to occur, thus resulting in an undesirable surface finish on the product

Multi-Metals CEMs

by Cooper Environmental     based in Beaverton, OREGON (USA)

Cooper Environmental's Xact 640 has the unique ability to generate high time resolution metals measurement in stacks. This unique capability has the potential to qualify as a substitution for the combination of a Hg/ PM CEMs application as well as the potential for a pollution control system feedback loop that could result in the reduction of pollution control consumables. Our systems have been site certified for compliance measurements at hazardous waste incinerator and secondary lead smelter sites.

Quantitative Analysis of Steel Using Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)

by Applied Spectra, Inc.     based in Fremont, CALIFORNIA (USA)

For steel analysis, LIBS is ideal for rapid QC (quantitative analysis and detection of contaminants) for raw materials in production, and to check the elemental composition of finished products. LIBS also offers the ability to analyze slag samples that can lead to the recovery of precious metals lost in the steel production process.

Emissions Monitoring for Steel Mills

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

Steel mills include a multitude of activities that generate gaseous emissions. Besides continuous emissions stack monitoring, the applications in a steel mill also include process mesaurements that provides important data to the operators in order to optimize the steel making process.

Continuous emissions monitoring for aluminium smelters

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

Process control and emissions monitoring in an aluminium smelter is a challenge due to the high concentrations of HF. To use an extractive system in this environment will demand a lot of maintenance.

Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Monitoring in Air

by Unisearch Associates Inc.     based in Concord, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a colorless gas that is used extensively in industrial applications. Fluoride monitoring is especially needed for aluminum plants that need to convert HF into fluorine for use in their processes. Any HF that escapes is a cost to the plant, so an HF analyzer is essential to keep track of and prevent the losses.
